I, for one, really appreciate the lack of a gas tank on an e-bike. But 60k is a bit spendy. "

An alarming lack of actual info, but the price and range are nice... I wonder what they are planning to use for batteries? "

" I may have just figured it out. The sensor that Kelly did development with is a 1 electrical cycle/rotation part. My ADI part is 2 cycles/rotation. This would definitely mess up the auto cal. I believe this means that I can just lie to the controller about the number of poles- in my case telling it there are 24 instead of 48. This would have the unintended side effect of reported RPMs being off by a factor of two as well, so I need to make sure my RPM limit is set correctly.

Thankfully I have nothing going on tonight so I'm going to try this as soon as I get home. Fingers crossed... "

It is definitely tight but looks it'll fit. Do you have a 92 or 93? I think there are some slight changes between years. "

" So Kelly has asked me to purchase and try the sine/cosine sensor that they use in the Motenergy ME1114/1115. Though they don't state anywhere that one must use this specific sensor, I don't think they've tested with anything else. So I have some of those on the way. I'll need to redesign how my sensor is mounted to accommodate the RM29 but it's doable, just a pain in the ass.

In the meantime I've asked them to in turn buy my sensor and test with that. We'll see if they reciprocate.

I wish there was more information relayed from the GUI and also that it was possible to do a manual calibration instead of the auto detect. Automation is nice until it doesn't work! It's frustrating because I could easily do the math and calibrate it myself if I could get more feedback from the controller. "

" Thanks - the power meter I got in from China - aliexpress - if you google ecpc404 there's quite a bit of info on them. They are pretty cheap, like $45 or so, but the build quality seems good, and they have a couple of built in relays which you can set switching parameters (I'm using them just to switch on some warning LED's at mid / low pack voltage).

" Well, they are not alone. KTM is going in the other direction. Next year they will be out with a new fuel injected two-stroke engine-powered "scrambler".

When I see the words "postal deliveries" I think of stop-and-go and really slow, but it likely would be a good choice for urban snail mail deliveries. "

Meet here: https://api.plugshare.com/view/location/44604, come early if you need to charge. I'll come early, plug in my J-plug 5-bike C13 splitter, hang out by the Google Starbuck wifi at the North end of the mall. If you need some level 1 charging, feel free park next to mine and plug into my splitter.

Lunch at Siren Canteen, get there by noon, beat the lunch rush.

Brian confirms the food is good, and the charger is capable. No guarantees we'll get it, but 101 to the beach is just 21 miles and our Zeros are efficient.

It's not a Zero-specific event. Other electric motorcycles, and the e-curious are welcome. No stinky belchers, please. "
